    Afr0, developers at Project Dollhouse, I have an IDEA. :idea: :idea: :idea: :idea:
    Well, what about the game controls being like the ones on The Sims 3.
    And also, the camera view and angles, etc. could be better than the ones in TSO.
    (This means you can view the world from ANY ANGLE at any zoom in any position - that would be quite cool)
    YOU MAY POST YOUR IDEAS BELOW! THIS IS THE UNOFFICIAL IDEAS THREAD! PLEASE READ, DEVELOPERS OF PROJECT DOLLHOUSE!

    Personally I liked the way it was. TS3 would be awesome but that also means the cost to host a server will go up and people have to have an up to date computer. There's nothing like the original, now porting in more items from expansions from TS1 that an idea!

    By
    I mean the angles. Like you could view your character at say, 32 degrees on the x axis, and 35 degrees on the y, etc.
    You could speed it up by:
    In the options, letting the player change the distance they can view at, and the fog. If you had a good computer these could be set differently to make the quality better, but they will make older computers have better performance.

    I agree with Aidan because I wouldn't want the charm and originality of the game to go kaput. That said, the only change I'd really accept would be more heads and outfits, but that is obviously not top priority. I'd even be happy with the rest of the heads from The Sims base game and expansion packs, since I'm sure it'd be easier to port them than to come up with brand new CC.

    I don't mean literrally as THE SIMS 3,
    I mean the cameras!
    NOTHING ELSE!
    I want it mostly like TS1 and TS2!
    I liked Alphaville.

    I want it to be like The Sims 1, end of story.
    No special angles or anything, I feel like that would ruin the game. Now, don't get me wrong. I love The Sims 2 but I don't like Sims 3.
    I've played Sims 1 since around 2000 and it would be amazing to get a multiplayer Sims 1 (TSO pretty much) with all the items already existing with the expansions pack (maybe skip the magic stuff though)
    Now I don't know what stuff was in TSO but I hope that the stuff from the expansionpacks (such as the heart-vibration bed from Livin' It Up / Livin' Large, the dancefloors from House Party, the sofa-table thing from Hot Date and the laboratory mixing-drinks thing from Livin' It Up / Livin' Large) is gonna be in this. It would be AWESOME.

    Oh, and have the ability to play your own songs through a streaming service would be great, or to upload it to some file hosting service and like.. put together a playlist on your stereo (ingame) with download links of the files and have it play that!

    Unfortunately this is not possible. The TSO and the Sims 1 the Avatars were full 3D characters but the objects were pre-rendered at 4 isometric angles. That means the game files do not include the 3D data to render objects from every angle. Its going to take us long enough to build the game that way ;)

    Yeah, it takes long to make a video game like this.
    Anyway, Max, could you delete all the spam posts on the forum with adverts, please?
    I develop NIOTSO with Fatbag, Propeng and Stump, btw, and it's tricky.
    I dont think we should have the camera angles like that.
    Anyways, could we have different foods?
    (Don't know whether it's already in TSO...)

    I don't think Sims 3 cameras would be the best idea, the time it would take to program it and the effort required would probably outweigh the end result - and people with older or slower computers wouldn't be able to utilize it. Hell, my gaming PC struggles with TS3's cameras ;)

    Xezno for food you just clicked single or multiple. There wasn't a choice like in TS2-3.

    Yep. Working on it, like:
    UI Translucency
    Fog & Clouds
    Fog Distance
    Cloud Height
    Hardware or Software rendering
    etc.
